I love this time of the year. It is warm enough to make fuel and the canola crop is just starting to bloom.

Must be nice living in the sunny south!
While I managed to get a batch done last week, there are still snowbanks in the back yard.... Nothing blooming for a couple weeks yet I would say... Frown
Cheers,
Jon

Ha! I almost bought one of those... $26,000 and it will out climb a Cessna 152..

I was looking at a two seater but passed because it meant pilot lessons if I wanted a passenger. Didn't have time for flying school.

So cool... and quite safe too...

LOL... I think the cows are out.. Each cow is only about 2 to 4 pixles in size.

Look at the 2nd aerial photo.. Bottom right hand corner, you see a patch of brown dirt... The cows are in a semi-straight line going left to right on the far right side of that patch. After a 2nd glance, it looks like there are also some cows (20 or so) on the green pasture just to the left of the road also.. (Bottom of photo, just left of center)

I can't tell which way they are pointing however.

I think those are cows anyhow.

That photo looks like it was taken at about 1000 to 1200 feet up.. At that altitude, a cow is about the size of a corn kernel at 20 feet. Since the photo is at an angle, the distance is increased.. The cow is probably the size of a kernel at 30 or 40 feet.

Just an educated guess.

When we used to go skydiving, you couldn't make out a car until you got below 7000 and even then, you couldn't tell the difference between a car or a pickup truck... people didn't show up until around 2000 if you knew right were to look...

Yeap I can see 'em, thanks Murphy. Funny I know a dairy farmer here in NZ who is a microlight instructor, keeps a club machine housed on his farm.

Here is a video my nephew put on youtube.

At 22 sec. and 57 sec. our dairy farm is in the center of the screen. At around 45 sec. you can see 3 of the 5 turkey barns we operate.

At 128 sec.you can see on the left side of the barn some smoke coming from a new litter burner. we are burning turkey waste to help heat the barn.

No the property is not that big, the aircraft is just that slow.

Reminds me of a joke. A Texan was bragging about his farm. He told a friend he could get in his truck and drive all day and not get off of this property. The friend said," I had a truck like that".
